The benefits of home ownership

Monday, June 13, 2016

“Owning a home has historically been the principal vehicle for Americans to build equity, start businesses, put kids through college, and retire with comfort and dignity. After all we’ve been through, we must stand by an institution that has helped build our nation’s middle class," said former HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

GROW South Dakota has a number of wonderful programs in place to help people finance their homes. First-time homebuyer education and down payment assistance are available as well as direct housing loans.

June is Home Ownership Month; a fine time to acknowledge the role that home ownership plays in the American Dream and raise awareness about the benefits of owning a home. Find out more:
